ABCyaGames is one of my favorite sites to use with my own children and in my classroom. They are an award winning educational site with a ton to offer. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t visit their site. We also have all of the amazing ABCya Apps, too.
My kids love playing with the seasonal apps that ABCya has on their site. My son, Jacob, goes crazy over the “Make a Pumpkin” activity.
My daughter, Riley, has been taking typing in forth grade. She loves getting to practice on Dance Mat, an amazing and free typing program. Now that she is more confident in her typing skills, she really enjoys making the ghosts disappear while playing Ghost Typing. It’s great, spooky fun!
Books about monsters can be useful tools for parents while delighting children. These arenâ€™t just books about silly and sometimes scary monsters they are about fear and conquering it. Just like how children use pretend play to test out adult situations and roles books offer kids a chance to test out scary things in a safe place. Most of these monsters arenâ€™t scary but even the cute ones help your child feel bigger and braver.
